As we gather, as a nation, to reflect upon the prevalent circulation of the “Big Lie,” and the resulting January 6th coup attempt, it is more important than ever that we take the necessary steps to safeguard our democracy and ensure our voices are heard in our electoral processes. In other words, we must actively engage in initiatives that aim to eliminate barriers of access to the polls, hold our election officials accountable, and restore faith in the sanctity of our elections among the general public.
As a first step to accomplish this, WV Citizens for Clean Elections and its partners in the WV Freedom to Vote Coalition are working to collect information regarding the challenges WV voters faced in accessing the polls during the 2022 primary election through the Voter Issues and Action Survey. The information collected throughout this campaign will be used to pressure election officials to eliminate these barriers and to advocate for improved poll worker training before the general election this November.
We also encourage you to share this survey as far and wide as possible. The future of our democracy is at stake. This digital toolkit includes a flyer, various social media graphics, and sample social media posts to make the sharing process as seamless as possible.
Thanks for helping us spread the word!
